Untethered 5.0.1

Good news for everybody waiting for untethered 5.1 jailbreak. Pod2g has successfully achieved the 5.1 untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4. Earlier on 1st May 2012, pod2g announced that he has achieved the important exploits which will lead to untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1. The poll he launched was also demanding that he should release 5.1 untethered as soon as possible.

Now after the latest tweet from pod2g everybody (at least me) must be anxious to get the public version of ios 5.1 untethered jailbreak software as soon as possible. Although the previous claims of untethered 5.1 jailbreak were not released for public use but this time I believe that pod2g will fulfill his promise as always and the latest 5.1 jailbreak which is untethered will be released for public. I believe pod2g will be making the public version so that the same can be released.

The latest tweet from pod2g is very clear and shows the confidence level of  him since the iPhone 4 is running with 5.1 untethered jailbreak. I believe and hope that new 5.1 jailbreak will also compatible with iPhone 4S 5.1 untethered jailbreak and iPad 3 5.1 untethered jailbreak . Lets wait and see the actual stuff.

After long wait at least there is a news about 5.1 untethered jailbreak for jailbreaknation or jailbreak community, today the famous jailbreaker Pod2G has given us a new hope that the work is on its way for the new 5.1 jailbreak which most probably will be untethered and for all existing devices, so that we shall be able to jailbreak 5.1 untethered. He says in his tweet:

News: we have all exploits required to do a new jailbreak. I’m working on bypassing ASLR at bootup

Just  to remind you if you are an old jailbreaker for ios 5.0.1 jailbreak also Pod2G was the person in charge of finding the exploits that were later used in the 5.0.1 jailbreak successfully and most importantly the jailbreak was compatible for all devices at that time. I understand the iPad 3 users must be waiting for the iPad 3 jailbreak which will help them to truly enjoy the full potential of the A5 device.

I wish I could jailbreak 5.1 today but remember there is another tweet by chpwn where he says that it could take months even if exploit is found, and he is true because in the previous case also Absinthe jailbreak took weeks after news broke of exploits on Pod2G’s blog last year.

Here is screen shot of pod2g’s tweet:

jailbreak 5.1 update

Here is the tweet by Chpwn where he says a fact:

Remember: just because all the exploits are found doesn’t mean that a jailbreak exists — it’s likely months away from first working at all

I am as enthusiastic as you are for getting the new ios 5.1 jailbreak, so lets wait and pray for success of our beloved jailbreakers and don’t forget to donate on their sites if you can. Subscribe to my blog below and also like me on Facebook and share.
